To Long Term member of the Sun Belt
You 2 are sort of the old guard now of the Sun Belt. How do you feel your school would view adding UMass as a football only member?

I could not see ASU supporting UMass unless it was a situation where we were guaranteed all sports invites to Missouri State and NMSU.

I am torn on an invitation. If they would agree to a scheduling alliance in basketball similar to what the MAC had...I could see the benefit to a football only invite, provided we still picked up an East and West all sports school closer by.

South Alabama is a founding member and has been a member fifteen years longer than Arkansas State and Louisiana.

A scheduling alliance like that would open up a can of worms with us that is for sure. We are essentially the same as UMass.

Yeah but football drives the bus and they are newborns in that realm.

I have a hard time seeing UMass get the votes to join, even as a football only.

Thank you. I didn't want to have to post it.

Why isn't Troy an old guard, too, if football is the barometer?
